Aniello Desiderio

Aniello Desiderio

Sun, Feb 5, 2017 - 2:30pm

Unlike other classical guitarists, Aniello Desiderio seems to have it both ways. While his virtuosic abilities are compared to those of Paganini and other nineteenth-century icons, he receives praise from the finest purveyors of twentieth-century music, including celebrated artists Chick Corea and John McLaughlin. And while his classical sensibilities are steeped in centuries of rich tradition, his unique approach makes his music timeless. Mr. Desiderio has toured and recorded extensively as a solo performer, the featured soloist of renowned orchestras, and with his own ensembles.

Sun, Feb 26, 2017 - 2:30pm

Grisha Goryachev is renowned for his extraordinary musical sensitivity and technical virtuosity in both classical and flamenco styles. He is one of very few guitarists in the world who is reviving the tradition of solo flamenco guitar in a concert setting that was practiced by legendary flamenco masters such as Ramón Montoya and Sabicas.? Grisha exposes audiences to some of the best guitar compositions flamenco has to offer. Instead of merely copying, he creates his own interpretations of these masterpieces, using dynamics and tone colors usually associated with classical music.
